The Sunday Briefing: Anthony "wwwBTHEREcom" Gregg and Anthony "BtCh I MiTe Be" Bruno Notch Big Sunday Wins

The Sunday Briefing: Anthony "wwwBTHEREcom" Gregg and Anthony "BtCh I MiTe Be" Bruno Notch... 0001

On the same day that the NFL held its Pro Bowl and the NHL its All-Star Game, some of the best online poker players showcased their skills by going deep in Sunday majors. The PokerStars Sunday Million had perhaps its most talented final table lineup ever. 2007 PCA Main Event Champion Ryan "Daut44" Daut held the chip lead to start the final table. Joining him for a chance at Sunday glory was Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst, Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo, and 2009 PCA Main Event Runner-Up Anthony "wwwBTHEREcom" Gregg. When the dust settled, it was Gregg who emerged victorious.

Joining Gregg in the PokerStars winner's circle were John "JRD312" Dolan and Chris "Moorman1" Moorman. Dolan won the Sunday 500 for $92,225, while Moorman took down the Sunday 2nd Chance for $50,696.32.

What do you get when you combine Double Guarantees Week with Multi-Entries? A whopping 14,409 entrants into the Full Tilt Poker $1.5 Million Guarantee. Even with such a massive field, several familiar names navigated their way to the final table. Among them were Dave "Doc Sands" Sands, Kyle "PXFACTOR" Brossia, Matt "mattyv" Vengrin, Nick "agriffrod" Mitchell, and Hiren "hustla16" Patel. However, they all came up short. Winning the nearly $440,000 first-place prize was Anthony "BtCh I MiTe Be" Bruno. Meanwhile, The Sunday Brawl drew huge numbers as well. Earning the top spot was Aaron "SpanishKey" Been for a $266,112.50 pay day.
